  1. By luck I stumbled on a 1971 #19xxx Series 1 car that will become my new project. I will use this thread for any further updates on the 1973's sale.
  2. Tragic news. 11/2019: I was entering my neighborhood, slowing down from 45mph and turning left. I cut my wheel 90 degrees directly on top of a 2 inch pile of sand and skidded into a guardrail at 10-15mph. I will be pulling my motor and drivetrain and selling this poor 240z on ebay within a month or two. She is definitely repairable but beyond my abilities.
  3. Jason240z, it's the previous version, I bought this less than a month before the new style was released.
  4. I just finished my taxes, so it's time for an update! I'm absolutely LOVING the Mikuni 44s! I need to schedule some dyno tuning this summer with Jeff Winter. Here's a video clip from the SU dyno runs I mentioned before. Sadly, they wouldn't let me touch the engine bay between runs. IIRC the numbers were right around 140whp/tq at 6000 feet.
  5. Yesterday I took a 14 hour round trip drive through the San Juan national forest to pick up this 73. Fairly solid but has some frame rail rust.
  6. I still need to sort out linkage, fuel rail, and initial jetting.
  7. Slow and steady. I chose to get the valve cover powdercoated gloss black.
  8. It's the older version. The resonator sits a couple inches lower than the floor boards. Shouldn't be a problem unless the car is slammed. I just have some Vogtland springs and Illuminas.
  9. I ended up selling my completely rebuilt (by Eiji at Datsun Spirit) "NISMO" 44s also known as the Type 4. I instantly regretted it, and two weeks later bought these Type 3 Datsun Competition versions.
  10. It's been a while. Fujitsubo is a work of art. I can't wait to hear the whole twin pipe system. A freshly vapor blasted JDM valve cover will be hydro dipped in black carbon fiber.
